Or hitting Control+Alt+1 if you are running ToastyX Strobelight.

Control+Alt+1 = LightBoost 10% (playing at night)
Control+Alt+5 = LightBoost 50% (usual setting)
Control+Alt+0 = LightBoost 100% (playing on a sunny day)

Often works even while in the middle of the video game!

All of them. All LightBoost monitors tend to benefit a lot. LightBoost mode causes nVidia to insert an artificial gamma bump (above and beyond what the hardware is doing), so these adjustments "undoes" the LightBoost gamma bleaching. It does darken LightBoost a bit, but the color saturation comes back.

LightBoost Gamma Fix
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Brightness = 52%
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Contrast = 45%
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Gamma = 0.70

--or--

LightBoost Gamma Fix Settings (LIGHTER / MILD VERSION)
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Brightness = 50%
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Contrast = 47%
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Gamma = 0.85

Alas, not all games "inherit" the Desktop adjustments, so adjust the in-game gamma downwards a little bit to compensate for the LightBoost bleach effect. However, these settings are precisely adjusted to allow you to see all shades at Lagom Contrast and Lagom Black Level on all LightBoost monitors (assuming the monitor Contrast isn't set too high -- clipping point is about Contrast OSD menu 90% for the VG278H, and about Contrast OSD menu 50% for VG248QE.)

How about OSD contrast on XL2420T? 50%?

I wonder how this 240Hz Bad Boy would fare after the LightBoost effect was added???

Is this the right panel to look at?

No more details or prices as yet. That monitor was only announced yesterday, so it may take a while for it to reach the stores etc.

Guru3D has this to say about it, much the same though really:-

http://www.guru3d.com/news_story/eizo_duravision_fdf2405w_monitor_has_240_hz_refresh_rate.html

Here's where I spotted the original press release:-

It might already be using a strobe backlight, because it uses a lower brightness during motion-blur-reduction mode!

I've now blogged about this at Blur Busters. Going to contact Eizo for more information...
